Macro to autofill to the last row.

I created a macro to autofill to the last row but it does not work correctly. I looked up a few other macros and they did not work for me either. Can someone take a look at this macro I made and see what changes I need, to make it go to the last row. Thanks!
Sub fill()

Range("N2:R2").Select
Selection.Autofill Destination:=Range("N2:R16586")
Range("N2:R16586").Select
End Sub

Use this code...

Sub fill()
Dim lrow As Long

lrow = Cells.Find(What:="*", SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Row
Range("N2:R2").Select
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("N2:R" & lrow)
Range("N2:R" & lrow).Select
End Sub

This worked perfectly! Thank you!

Assuming you have data in column M all the way down, you don't need a macro.

Select cells N2:R2 and then hover the cursor over the bottom right corner of R2, the cursor will change to a bold + symbol.  Double click and it will fill down columns N to R as far as there is data in column M.

Thanks

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

Thanks Rob! I was being lazy and wanted a quick way of doing it. Look out for my next question. Coming soon! You have been a big help.

Highlight and double-click can't be much slower. Also advantage of using non-VBA procedures is that they can be undone.

When you run a macro, it clears the Undo history.

Thanks Rob! I will remember that for the future. My other question is out there and I know you are going to say didn't I ask this already. The answer is no.... this is a bit different.
